    DjM................."it ain't cheap"..............so they figure how to implement it

    I would still look at a composite solution along the lines I enumerated.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    It's not an easy position you are in. Fortunately, the burden is taken off of you if this boss-manager-person says "Here is the budget, you will implement product X".

    I would mention the underlying problems, evangelize that while this solution may be a step in the right direction, it is NOT going to remove the risk or liability, and be vocal of your point but supportive of the change.
